Jun-19-10  JonathanJ: y does he have such a strange name?
Jun-19-10  Calli: <JonathanJ> Don't know y? Let Nora explain it
Jun-19-10  Prugno: Typical problem when you have to write a Cyrillic name (he is of Ukrainian origin) in the Latin alphabet, although I suppose something like "Daniel Dvirny" would have made more sense.

I've heard of an experienced Italian master who, when meeting this promising junior for the first time, asked him "How many 'y' s do you have ?!"

Oct-21-10  wordfunph: weird name with four Ys..
Dec-13-11  BIDMONFA: Danyyl Dvirnyy

DVIRNYY, Daniyyl

Mar-21-12  wordfunph: downed GM Ponkratov (2607) in round 2 of European Individual, so far perfect after 2 rounds.

Jan-30-13  PhilFeeley: I am unable to find this game anywhere. I have it from a chess lesson. I am unable to make out the accuracy of the first name, since the speaker is Romanian (I think), so the spelling could be wrong:

Cherveny (or Czerveny?) - Daniyyl Dvirnyy

Black has 2 bishops and 2 pawns for the queen and superior attacking chances. The rogue knight on e3 is ready to do more damage, and his king is safe. White will castle long and black will attack along the a & b files. Material is considered equal.

  Penguincw: Congrats to 2nd seed Danyyil Dvirnyy (2541) for winning the "6th Int. Open di scacchi Dolomiti". He finished in a 5-way tie for 1st with 6.5/9 (+4,-0,=5), but beat the other 4 on tiebreaks.
Sep-05-20  Max Chovanski: Reason for 4 "y"s in the name? An incredibly stupid transliteration system where two completely different sounds are transliterated identically. The much more logical transliteration is "Daniil Dvirny"; "Daniil Dvirnyj" and "Daniel Dvirny" would also make a lot more sense.
Sep-05-20  Granny O Doul: Maybe he's a supermale.
Sep-17-20  RandomVisitor: If you put


...into Google translate you get:


...a better transliteration.

Danyyil Dvirnyy himself is probably ok using the 'incredibly stupid transliteration' for his personal Twitter/IG, several online aliases, his professional chess appearance and as displayed nameplate in (all) his local Italian media interviews.

I get Khovvansky's point though.
